A pair of 19-year-olds has been arrested on drug charges and for a staged armed robbery on the UL Lafayette campus.

According to UL Police, the suspects, Brennan Anderson and Jacob Timothy were instrumental in organizing the staged robbery and the drug deal that occurred last Tuesday.

At approximately 3:44 a.m. Tuesday, police responded to a report of an armed robbery near the Cajun Village Apartments on campus.
